A DUP MP whose office landlord wrongly received £10,000 in Covid funding has said the money has now been repaid in full.
It emerged over the weekend that the grant was paid out to Cinq Properties, which owns Paul Girvan's constituency office in Ballyclare.
Mr Girvan told the Belfast Telegraph the money had been repaid on Friday and that he had contacted the company last week as news of the overpayments emerged.
It is estimated that around £4.5m was paid out in error earlier this year as part of the Small Business Grant Support Scheme.
More than 400 firms received the money wrongly. A total of 74 payments have been recouped in full. This included £30,000 to Sinn Fein offices which were not paid back until last week.
Former MP Elisha McCallion, West Tyrone MLA Catherine Kelly and two party officials have since stepped down over the scandal.
Mr Girvan said: "We didn't even know that our landlord received the payment because it was quite clear from the outset that political offices shouldn't benefit.
"I've never met the landlord and only spoken to the company once in all the time I've had the office. He came back to confirm they had received a payment for our office at 1.25pm on Thursday and that they would repay, which they have."
He added: "I do think that if you're receiving payments into your account you should know where they're coming from. If it's not meant to be there it should be paid back immediately."
On Monday, Economy Minister Diane Dodds vowed that all payments made in error through the grant scheme would be recovered. She added: "I am content that my department took the necessary swift action to support tens of thousands of businesses and jobs under threat caused by the Covid-19 crisis."
But speaking before Mrs Dodds' announcement, Mr Girvan said: "I would say it I don't think all of it will be recouped. There will be some difficulty in getting all that money back.
"Many people might have it spent by now, so getting it back is going to be a long process."
He said the grant scheme was "a blunt instrument" which relied on businesses being transparent. Of those who returned payments, "I don't know if they had to be pursued or came forward", he said.
In a statement, the landlord said: "Cinq Properties Ltd like many other businesses in Northern Ireland did receive an unsolicited £10,000 small business grant earlier this year.
"However, it has now transpired that the company was not entitled to this grant. Several attempts were made to repay the funds and the £10,000 was repaid to an account of the Department of Finance on Friday."
Speaking to the BBC, First Minister Arlene Foster backed DUP MLA Gary Middleton's decision to refer the payments to Sinn Fein to the PSNI.
"It's up to the police of course whether they decide to instigate a criminal investigation, but I absolutely support my party colleague in the complaint that he has made."
Sinn Fein finance spokesperson Pearse Doherty told RTE he did not expect any other party members to resign.
"There was no justification for the fact that money was not repaid back immediately to the department… therefore we needed to identify who was responsible for those accounts and prompt action was taken," he said.
